|The Sony DSC-P32 is a digital entry level camera but it certainly deserves its place amongst the many 3 Megapixel cameras because of its user-friendliness of the various settings and the fine image quality. The image resolution of 3 Megapixels gives a good result, also when the user of this camera likes to see his or her digital images printed on paper. The DSC-P32 offers everything a starter could wish for; convenience and user friendliness.
I used the image resolution of 3 Megapixels to print various images taken indoors, outdoors, in sunny weather and cloudy weather, on a regular home inkjet printer. The images look fine apart from the occasional exposure failure. When I look back a few years, it is amazing how fast the development of the digital camera and also of the home printer took place. The combination of digital camera and home printer has now become reality for many people. The fact of being able to take a picture, print it and hold the photo in your hands within minutes, is amazing. The prices have dropped lately but the technical performance has gone up to a higher level. The quality of the print paper is of a very high standard. And one who compares a good print with a traditional print has to go through a lot of trouble to find a difference! Where does it all lead to? Nowadays more and more images are taken. Sure, lots of digital images will only end up on the hard drive while the traditional photos that always end up on paper will be more easily shared with family and friends. Personally I consider the period we are in now as a transition, a changeover. We will find different ways of sharing digital images. The availability of devices like the Sony DSC-P32 and a home inkjetprinter add to the total digital photography experience. Taking the digital images is not a difficult technical performance anymore, the opposite: it is pleasant and also printing the images is easy. Maybe your local photo shop dealer doesn't approve of home printing and managing the images, but it still concerns the image and the dealer still has sufficient possibilities to play a role in digital photography.
I used the Sony DSC-P32 camera for one week under diverse light conditions. The camera reacts really fast, offers good exposure and adds to a high quality print. The compact size allows you to carry it with you in the pocket of your trousers or the inner-pocket. The weight is no obstacle! The basic settings of the camera enable you to use it in diverse situations and conditions, and one who wants just a little bit more than the standard setting can use his or her creativity when using the extra settings. The Sony DSC-P32 is well-worth the money and again this product is another typical Sony product, delivered with charger, 2100mAh batteries and very important a thorough written manual, easy to read and well-illustrated. If you are looking for a digital camera which offers user friendliness and quality, you have to consider the Sony DSC-P32, it's recommendable!
